Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng is hoping to play in the Europa League next season, having experienced European football at Celtic before his move to the Liberty Stadium last Summer.
Michael Laudrup's side could earn a place in next season's Europa League if they can beat Bradford City in the Capital One Cup Final on February 24th at Wembley.
Swansea's last European campaign was almost 22 years ago in 1991, when they were able to qualify having won the Welsh Cup, however that rule was blocked four years later. That experience in Europe was a forgetful one to say the least, as they lost to As Monaco 10-1 in two legs.
'It's an amazing feeling to get to Wembley and reach a cup final,'
'We did brilliantly in both legs of the tie against Chelsea, especially in the second half of the second leg where we dominated the game. We're very satisfied.
'It's a big, massive present for me to get through to the final because it was also my 24th birthday on Thursday.
'It will be a huge moment in my career to play at Wembley.
'If we win the final it will be huge for everyone. The club, the fans, the players and me.
'We will try our very best to win the League Cup. We have done very well this season so I hope we can keep it going.'
But before the players can think of playing in Europe, which would give the club an advantage to trying to attract players, they have a Cup final they have to win to earn it. Although they face a League Two side - Bradford City, it'll be far from easy as they've beaten Arsenal, Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa to get there.
'I'm looking forward to playing in another final,'
'I played for Celtic in the Scottish Cup final, we won and I scored. It would be nice to do the same thing again.
'It will be a fantastic occasion. We want to win the game, but we have to be careful against Bradford.
'It won't be an easy game for us because they have already beaten three Premier League teams.
'We won't take them lightly.'
